China


Overview

China ranks as a major producing country for eight of the top 20 marine finfish species in production—the most of any country assessed by GAPI. These include: bastard halibut, cobia, groupers, Japanese seabass, large yellow croaker, red drum, red seabream, and tiger pufferfish. Together, GAPI assesses the performance of over 400,000 mT of marine finfish production in China.

China’s country score (32) is the second-worst of all countries (just above Taiwan’s 30)—far below the global average country score (59). China’s score is significantly undermined by groupers (species-country score of 15). Even more striking is that China’s highest performance score—for tiger pufferfish culture—is only 42. While all assessed Chinese production performs below average, specific performance within each indicator varies widely.
